SageNet MSSP Expands Cybersecurity Services Division

SageNet, a Tulsa, Oklahoma-based managed security services provider (MSSP), is expanding its cybersecurity services division and adding cybersecurity analysts and engineers to its team.

The company this month announced it is relocating its cybersecurity services division to a 4,000-square-foot facility that features a 1,200-square-foot security operations center (SOC), SageNet said in a prepared statement.

SageNet's cybersecurity division is currently based in Media, Pennsylvania, and the expanded facility will remain in the same town, the company noted.

Also, SageNet will add four new cybersecurity positions and expects to hire eight to 10 new cybersecurity professionals over the next year, according to SageNet Chief Technology and Security Officer Paul Truitt.

SageNet Opens National Logistics Center

SageNet in January launched its National Logistics Center (NLC), a 20,000-square-foot facility located next to its Tulsa headquarters.

The company said its NLC features:

  • Administrative offices.
  • Configu­ration, cabling, test and repair facility.
  • Digital signage lab.
  • Inventory management and storage area.
  • More than 12,000 square feet of ware­house space.

The NLC allows SageNet to "coordinate manpower and materials logistics much more efficiently," SageNet CEO Daryl Woodard (pictured) said in a prepared statement. It ensures all SageNet systems are properly tested and config­ured, Woodard said, to guarantee installations cause minimal disrup­tion to its customers' operations.

In addition, SageNet has tripled the size of its network operations center (NOC), the company said.

The NOC launched in 1999, and today, allows SageNet's network administrators to monitor network operations for customers across the country, according to the company.
